i started drinking coffee almost two years ago. when i moved into my new home last year i needed a coffee maker, spending $2.00 on coffee everyday adds up and the free coffee at work isn’t all that great, and so i went on amazon.com and walmart.com and read review after review of coffee makers. i would come to a decision on one, and then scroll down the page more and see a bad review, then click to another coffee maker. and start the process over.
waffling. endless waffling over what coffee maker to buy. i am always trying to maximize every choice i make.
pick and stick
i’m known for too much information gathering and too much benefit/analysis, which leads to too much indecisiveness. a time waster! since i am fully aware of my waffling i force myself to come to a point of what i call “picking and sticking”. i tell myself “just pick and stick!” and it normally works, usually, most of the time…well, okay i admit that yesterday i picked and i didn’t stick. i was at the home depot picking out some brick edging for my flower bed, i picked some out, walked the store, and then went back and changed the color of the brick. the second choice was so much better!
so in the middle of searching for the perfect coffee maker my friend tells me she has one in her garage that she doesn’t use. and this ends the waffling. the indecisiveness. the time wasting. it’s not the best coffee maker in the world, but it works perfectly fine and looking back my friend potentially saved me an hour of my life! i was totally over thinking it when a less preferred option (someone else essentially picking out a coffee maker for me) worked out fine.
